I ran today carefully after the sun rose. I met with my running group at 6am, returned a borrowed jacket, but decided not to run with them due to my recent falls. I chose to run in daylight (7:10am this morning) and on an even surface, the path around Lake Hollingsworth. My stomach was still not feeling great, but I knew that with the Disney Princess Half Marathon two weeks from tomorrow, I was really needing a long run. I originally had hoped to go 15 miles, but at 13.65 miles I decided it was enough. I was getting a blister on my right foot and it was starting to rain. In fact, on the way home it down poured, so I was glad I made that call.
I'm not optimally trained for the upcoming event, but I'm adequately trained to enjoy the event and finish without too much strain. With the challenges I've faced recently, I think I've done pretty well. Now just a few short runs and it will be time to go for it!!
